Summer is here which means barbecues, pool time, and relaxation under the sun. Mosquito’s can very quickly become a huge problem, especially in Central Florida, making your summer fun outdoors unbearable. Not only are their bites a nuisance, but they also carry serious diseases like West Nile or Zika Virus. Keep your summer fun and check out these four tips that can help you mosquito-proof your yard:
- Dump Excess Water
Take a look outside for anything that can collect water from rain or your sprinklers. Check plant saucers, gutters, toys or dog bowls that can retain enough water to create a mosquito breeding ground.
- Clean Off Tarps and Covers
Covers for firewood or tarps over boats can hold water you can’t usually see. Thoroughly clean them to keep mosquitoes from making a home there.
- Get Rid of Excess Yard Clippings
Gather and remove extra grass, weeds, leaves, and other leftover yard clippings. This will eliminate places for them to hide out.
